LA rockers Joyce Manor are about to kick off a short southwest tour which comes to TX for four shows surrounding Chaos in Tejas. Those shows include Rubber Gloves in Denton (5/30) and the previously discussed Chaos in Tejas show at Beauty Ballroom on June 1 with No Age, Ceremony, The Young and Gun Outfit (tickets). Screaming Females were supposed to play that show too but unfortunately had to cancel. They'll follow that with another Chaos in Tejas show at Scoot Inn on June 2 with Touche Amore, Japanther, Creem, Post Teens, and Hounds of Hate. Tickets for that show are on sale now. That show is the first on a three-date run with Touche Amore, which also includes a Lubbock, TX show at Jake's on June 5.
The band released their second LP and first for Asian Man Records, Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired, last month. When I first wrote about that album, I mentioned it's combined approach to both emo and indie rock. I'd also like to mention that it begs for repeated listens and despite consisting of 9 songs in only 13 minutes, each track has got a hell of a lot of individuality. In addition to their trademark pop punk blasts, we're given two raw acoustic tracks, the slow-ish jam, "See How Tame I Can Be," the punky jangle pop of "Bride of Usher," and a fun, but slightly out of place cover of "Video Killed the Radio Star." If you still haven't heard the album, stream the whole thing over at Punknews.

The Young @ Bar 96 - BV-SXSW 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)

You can download tracks "Don't Hustle For Love" and "Why Feel Spooky?" and "Livin Free" above, and check out the cover art below. Pre-order the album here.
Their current schedule includes a trio of Austin dates. As previously mentioned, the band's set to play Red 7 opening for Frankie Rose and DIVE tonight (4/14). They also play Beauty Ballroom with No Age, Screaming Females, Ceremony, Gun Outfit, and Joyce Manor on June 1 (part of Chaos in Tejas), and have a release show at 29th Street Ballroom with Sungod and Spray Paint on June 16.

Screaming Females @ Bar 96 on 3/14 (more by Tim Griffin)
"... by the end of Screaming Females, the stage area was at capacity. The NJ 3-piece band led by pint-sized powerhouse Marissa Paternoster on guitar and vocals had the place rocking out and going nuts. The talent those three posess is truly mind-blowing, especially with a few Lone Stars in your system. I am positive that every single person at Bar 96 Wednesday night, if they weren't already, left a Screaming Females fan." [BrooklynVegan]Screaming Females, who were recently in Austin for SXSW, BrooklynVegan showcase at Bar 96 included, will be back in Austin, at the end of a tour, for a show on May 4 at Red 7 where they'll open for Tragedy (!). Criaturas are also on the bill and tickets are still on sale. Tragedy also have shows coming up in NYC and France.
You would think that maybe that show was part of Chaos in Tejas, which Screaming Females are also playing in June, but it's not. Their Chaos show happens June 1st at Beauty Ballroom with the killer lineup of No Age and Ceremony also on the bill. Tickets are still on sale for that too.
In the meantime, Screaming Female's new LP, Ugly is out TODAY (4/3) via Don Giovanni Records. Check out their new single "Expire", with an updated set of tour dates, below.
